is more committed to acting on this moral obligation we have than the president of the united states of america. ladies and gentlemen, president barack obama. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. thank you so much. thank you, everybody. please have a seat. good afternoon, everybody. let me begin by thanking our vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful for all of you taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. we also heard from unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. graham, julia, kenny and t
demonstrations you see here in the streets. >>> meanwhile, here, president obama is expected to announce his plan to reduce gun violence as early as today. but many states are not waiting. last night, the republican-controlled senate in new york approved what's being called the toughest gun restrictions in the country, including a full ban on assault weapons and ammunition clips that hold more than seven rounds. and new background checks to keep guns away from the mentally ill. >>> and parents, before you write that next check for college tuition, you might want to take a listen to this. a new study finds that the more money parents give to their children for college, the lower their grades are. apparently, getting a blank check leaves many students feeling less motivated. hmm. students getting money from mom and dad, are more likely to graduate. >> that's awesome. >> that is. >>> and a bizarre one here. police in sweden are trying to figure out why a cleaning lady tried to steal this commuter train. >> what? >> she commandeered, it was an empty train. moments later, she crashed it into an apartm
, and later, arizona governor jan brewer delivers her state of the state address. >> there's a new ebook on the market called how the technology can fix the budget and establish obama's legacy. the co-authors are both fcc officials. reed hundt in the clinton administration, and blair levin spent time there as the national broadband plan. gentlemen, thanks for being here. mr. hundt. your book's subtitle. how can technology fix the budget and help us over the so-called fiscal cliff. >> guest: that is the subtitle and it's a bit of a mouthful. the fundamental idea here is if you spend time in silicon valley, spend time in detroit where the automobile industry is being rebuilt. you spend time outside the beltway you see that america has the potential to generate abundance for its own citizens and for the world. you spend time only inside the beltway it looks like a zero sum game, looks like lose/lose and who is going to lose the most is the gist of the negotiations. so what we tried to say in the book, what are the lessons of the technology sector, that comes from the optimism in the tec
in mexico and the united states in which we have a lot of hope in the government of mr. pena nieto and the government of mr. obama, that they can listen other voices on a very delicate subject to security. what are we doing, local governments facing challenges that sometimes go out of our hands and anyway we have to deal with them. there is no doubt that the main concern, for instance, in my city in northeast mexico is a border state with taxes. too often, cities have borders with the rio, texas that we also have my city on the southeast part of the state and it's a strategic location. my city the city of 670,000 people. it's a big city. the metropolitan area sharing the space which has two cities, our neighbors in another city, which is my city. there is no doubt that the main concern of the people in the border areas on the mexican side is the demand for safety and the demand for security. this demand is being heard louder and louder than the demands for employment and secret services, which is what we mayors do. when i was listening of course for job creation, economic developme
will transpire in the region. prior to 9/11 the united states contained terrorism on my part of the world. after 9/11 we actively went after and our strategy was to eliminate and now with president obama it's to disengage. they see us disengaging. now, i would remind, you're right exactly why we went in there. now the reason why al-qaeda was able to locate was because of the taliban control. i don't think there's any doubt that the taliban are a significant force remaining. and al-qaeda has proven to be remarkably capable of regenerating itself with new leadership quite often. so you see a region and with enormous difficulties not to mention the threat of iran being, continuing on the path towards the acquisition of nuclear weapons. let me ask you about the president's choices for his cabinet. correct me if i'm wrong but i can't remember a time when the opposing party has opposed every single person that the president nominates for his cabinet. it's usually been the rule if the president's going to be in charge of the government, we have to give him the people he wants to run it. but republicans
